I have to admit, I'll be a little sad when Vertical stops releasing the Black Jack series when they reach the last volume.

The "god" of Japanese comics delivers. Very human, sensitive stories

I should not even review this. Without reading the previous editions, I'm not quite sure what to think. I really didn't like the main character much and I'm not sure why he is doing what he's doing. He's obviously helping people, but I'm not sure why he's doing all these medical procedures. Art is aright but didn't seem as good as his other stuff. I wasn't interested enough that I feel a need to read any more. Probably my loss.

Yet another wonderful piece! I'm not sure how Tezuka managed to write so many great Black Jack stories, but I'm really glad he did :)

Another great volume in the series. All the stories were interesting and this one seemed a bit more gross then usual.
